Time and time again, the Not-So-Reverend Al Sharpton has proved himself to be one of the United States’ sleaziest opportunists. In the name of advancing “civil rights” Sharpton has shamefully stoked racial division within our country and set actual civil rights back fifty years.
Sharpton has found a fresh axe to grind with the election of people-powered outsider Republican over his Democrat friend Hillary Clinton, and he recently mouthed off to his followers about what he wants them to do now that Trump is our elected leader. Stated Sharpton, who is the president of the National Action Network, “We’re not just doing this to be doing it. We do it because it can lead to change and, believe me, there will be a season of civil disobedience particularly around the Sessions nomination.”
He added, “Make them understand that if they think they are voting based on some courtesy of a Senate colleague and will not face a real backlash in their own states, then they have another thing coming. This is not going to be some regular ceremonial procedure that they’re going to be able to bluff their way through.”
Continued Sharpton, “We intend to make this a critical stand in terms of where people are with civil rights and voting rights in this country. No one will be given a pass to say ‘I had to vote for my colleague.’ This is an affront to everything the civil rights and voting rights community has stood for historically and a vote for Sessions should be held accountable and punishable by the voters.”
Unfortunately for foolish Sharpton, the head of Sessions’ defense is an African-American Congressional staffer named William Smith who had the final word on Sessions’ reputation, saying, “I have known Senator Sessions for over 20 years and worked for him over ten. Not one time, throughout that entire experience, has he ever said anything offensive or racist.” There’s no way Sessions’ confirmation can get denied. Are you sick of Al Sharpton?
